So sorry to hear of Dick’s passing.
I always enjoyed popping in and talking to him about politics and just funny stories we laughed about.
He was a great man who raised a wonderful family and owned a great family business in our community. He will be greatly missed❤ ️

Always the gentleman. Frannie and Dick were welcome everywhere. His business employed Randy Sisco and my husband and I enjoyed their company and their kindness over the years.
